A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman. The ancient religion of the Yoruba people of Nigeria, known as Regla de Ocha and Santeria in the Diaspora, is the engine behind this supernatural mystery thriller. This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.
Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

|Ben Vereen and moi at a wonderful Spa Party he gave for the cast and FOH staff of "Fosse".|
It was while bartending at The Broadhurst Theatre at "Fosse" that I met Donna Summer. During the 1970's everyone used to tell me that I looked like the great Disco Queen. In 2001 Donna came to see Ben Vereen (they both appeared in the film "Hair") perform in the production and decided to stop by the bar to chat with me. I guess she thought I resembled her too. She had the most powerful voice, which I witnessed at an outdoor concert at Boston Harbor. She almost blew us out of our seats many rows away. RIP
Before working at The Broadhurst I worked at the Winter Garden and closed, at the time, the longest running show on Broadway "Cats"! That's a pic of me and the "Cats" bartender crew...
